The Victorian Chaise-Longue by Marghanita Laski

Quick update from myself, mainly I have been doing some painting and a lot of thinking about what to do next. Taking on a creative career is risky so it is how I am going to balance it with a more day-to-day job to earn money to survive and how best to do that. Apart from that I’ve been enjoying catching up with friends over a cup of tea and cake and preparing for the degree show which is open from next weekend (you should come it will be awesome).

We were set a project to be involved with a small exhibition as part of the West Port Book Festival that goes on every year around the Grass Market area in Edinburgh, which is very close to my college. The Main Point book shop gave us some random books and we choose one from a brown envelope and had to make work responding to the books.

The Victorian Chaise Longue is about a woman who clings to male dominated work, she’s a fairly spineless character who is recovering from TB she falls asleep on the chaise-longue and wakes up in a nightmare where she is another woman who is dying from TB. I was going to show one as a more nightmarish element but I liked the simplicity of the image I kept it as it was, we also had to design a bookmark which I shall publish another day!

As ever, thank you for stopping by!
